Today I have something fun and super easy to share with you… the Rip Flip Technique! This idea comes from Marelle Taylor (no relation that I know of!) and you can see her original post here. This technique will help you turn one of your 12×12 double sided pretty papers into 6 cards! It’s kind of like a One Sheet Wonder.
4×6 Rip Flip Technique
You may have guessed from the name of this technique how it’s done, but I’ll give you a few more details. Basically you can cut your pretty 12×12 double sided papers into SIX 4″x6″ pieces. Then you take each 4″x6″ piece and rip it at around the 2″ mark and flip one piece over. Then all you need to do is tape those two pieces onto a card base. Super easy!! Just embellish from there.
Tips for Lining It Up: For the card above I used a Whisper White card base of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″. When taping on the first pretty paper piece, line it up so that you have the same size border on all 3 un-torn edges. Then with the second piece line it up so you have the same size border on all 3 un-torn edges AND make sure that the edges line up with the first piece you taped down.
Embellish! I love these kind of techniques where the base is easy and you can embellish as much or as little as you like. On this card I added a 1″ wide greeting on Whisper White and banner cut one end. It was attached to the card with dimensionals and then I added one small enamel star to finish it off.
Go grab a piece of 12×12 paper and give this technique a try!!
